One more day at the WI State Fair and Plein Air Painting

Thank you Larry Wynn at East Coast Concessions for the commission in painting the award winning concession stand at the WI State Fair. There were (what seemed to me) millions of toys and inflatables and stuffed animals and poop emoji hats. Earlier in the week a couple of kids stopped at my easel and told me I should incorporate a Pokemon into my paintings. I listened, laughed, and then said “I don’t think that’s ever going to happen.” Well… I think I painted about 20 Pikachu’s. Thanks to all the conversation and teachable moments to the kids (and adults). Persistence, working through the materials, envisioning the results long before they are visible were all aspects that I spoke to my audience about. 8 hours of painting – all in this 18″ x 24″ finished work “Natalie and Katie at East Coast Concessions at the WI State Fair.”

 

2013 REAW Waterford was a Success

The River’s Edge Art Walk (REAW) was outstanding this year. A huge thanks to the crowds, the students, my family, and Melissa and Dan Trittin for the support and help simply exhibiting the work. Without the audience, the crowd, my art would just be for me. Thank you.

34 works of art in 50 seconds… Thanks Southampton for the Inspiration

Thanks to the Inspiration of Blouin Art Info‘s Southampton Art Fair (the Third and LARGEST art fair in Southampton), and the 60 works in 60 seconds video produced to publicize the show (Link Here). I present to you 34 Works of Art in 50 seconds. The video of my works (with music presented by YouTube – Thanks) I offer a brief glimpse of the works currently on display (and for sale) at Cafe LuLu in the Bay View neighborhood of Milwaukee, WI. If you happen to be in the neighborhood – please stop in and take a look. If you are in Southampton, do the same for their show!
